Iran says Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister is following the same wrong, futile approach pursued by Riyadh in recent years.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has reacted to recent remarks by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir in a meeting in London.
“It is highly regrettable that the Saudi foreign minister still insists on following the same wrong, costly and futile approach pursued by this country (Saudi Arabia) over the recent years, and is continuing to bang the drum for tension and violence as well as destructive behaviour and policies,” said Qassemi in a Wednesday statement.
“Saudi officials should reconsider their approach and views, and, instead of showing infatuation with, and becoming overexcited by the United States’ repetitive and useless words and policies vis-à-vis Iran, find a decent way out of the domestic and regional crises they are grappling with,” he went on to say.
Qassemi warned that the approach adopted by the Saudi government will cause the Kingdom, its people and the region to fall victim to Saudi Arabia’s illusionary, wrong and superficial calculations.
He also advised Riyadh to accept the realities in the region based on farsightedness and in accordance with their interests and responsibilities and without any prejudice and obstinacy.
